What is database management?
Database management is the organization, storage and retrieval of data. It involves the design, implementation and support of stored data to get the most value from it. Real-time database management is also used in various industries such as banking, law, medical records, multimedia, accounting, reservation systems, scientific data analysis etc.
There are different kinds of database management systems. Centralized database management means all the data resides in one place. A distributed database places data over a variety of cluster nodes. A federated database provisions data without added persistence or duplication of source data.
